The ambiance at Gracie’s is amazing. The rustic but elegant decor, spaciousness, and intimate dining experience make this a perfect venue for a special occasion. The food was delicious—be sure to have some of the house-made pasta, the gnocchi and rigatoni will call to you when you think of Gracie’s again. And, you couldn’t ask for nicer servers! More...
There were three of us and we all said that everything was excellent. The first and second courses were amazing. In our opinion the deserts were a slight step lower. We can't wait to return and try some different dishes. Also our wait person was the most knowledgeable about everything. I wish that we had gotten her name so that we might request her upon our return. More...
Every thing was amazing. Honestly a perfect way to spend my birthday. Our server Lindsey was fantastic and could not have been more helpful. Absolutely fantastic way to celebrate my birthday with the family. More...
It was a very special occasion for us and all the staff went even further above and beyond than they usually do. Gracie’s is a fantastic place for a special occasion. It is the kind of place you go to for an experience. Great food. Great service. A great night. More...
My husband and I wanted a fun wedding reception to follow our ceremony at the nearby Providence Athenaeum. We wanted a non-sit down dinner with lots of drinks and dancing and Gracie's--thanks to Kendal--delivered that and more.
First, about Kendal, the on-site event coordinator. She was an absolute dream to work with, especially since my husband and I live and work in NYC with somewhat difficult work schedules. While I grew up in RI and already loved Gracie's, she made the decision easier and we picked Gracie's the first weekend we started looking at venues.
Second, the experience. We wanted a fun reception for our mostly out-of-town (and even out-of-country) guests with great food and drinks that wouldn't stop flowing. They worked with us to have an awesome list of a mix of passed appetizers and other foods (and a gnocchi bar). My personal favorite was that, being from RI, the chef was able to make a "stuffie station."
I also have celiac disease and felt very comfortable with the staff and prep that I wouldn't get sick. They also handled a handful of other dietary needs with ease (again, shout out for that awesome "stuffie station" with gluten free ones for me).
I cannot stress enough how much I personally did not and do not care about linens and other decorating details. Gracie's handled that all and the venue just looked gorgeous.
We also had about 115 guests overall, which seems like a lot, but the main floor worked perfectly for the dance party wedding atmosphere we were going for.
Thank you again to to Kendal and the entire staff at Gracie's for such an amazing experience. I cannot speak highly enough of this amazing restaurant and can't wait to stop by next time we're in Providence. More...
We had a lovely birthday dinner for my wife, which included a hand-written birthday note to her from Gracie's (I had given them a head's up when making the reservation), table glitter, and complimentary toasting champagne. The meal was wonderful, exceeded only by the service we received from our waiter Marc, whose ability to be informative, friendly, and attentive is simply extraordinary. This was a very special dining experience. More...
Just the best. Wonderful menu. I treating combinations of lovely fresh ingredients. Truly top notch service without being stuffy-and very knowledgeable about the wine list too. NTBM for a special meal. Order the 3 Course dessert offering and you’ll get things not on the menu. Nice to split. More...
Birthday dinner. Always impeccable service. Beautiful food
Amazing service, amazing food (cheese plate, rib eye, duck, creme brûlée were delicious!!), great date night!
Romantic! Chef’s tasting with wine pairing was amazing! Staff is knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Awesome dinner. Did the 7-course chef tasting which was fantastic. Only downside was how long it took- about three hours. But they told us beforehand that it’s “a journey” and “an experience”, so we knew it’d be long. Terrific service and food.
We are long time customers of Gracies and have been to other restaurants in the country and Gracies is still the best.
Gracie's is always fabulous. The staff was particularly attentive to my lady companion (we were celebrating her birthday that evening). The food was marvelous and it was a magical evening. Despite being busy, they arranged for us to sit at our favorite table. We felt like royalty there. Thank you! More...
Excellent food but our server -Evan was not attentive and slow with simple requests like an additional drink. I have had him before and same bad experience
It was a lovely experience. Elizabeth our server was so vivacious and personable. She helped out us with recommendations . She was superb at keeping things moving in that we had play tickets. I am always a bit taken back by the prices for a glass of wine however. It is fabulous but very pricey . We do however love Gracies especially at the holidays. We’ll be back ☺️ More...
Absolutely loved it! The decor and ambiance was beautiful. All of the staff were lovely, attentive, and very well seasoned industry professionals. We did the 5 course tasting and everything was surprisingly delightful! Loved the cookies in our car afterwards too! More...
Gracie's has always been our "go to" place for many years. We had visitors from Florida recently and there was never any question what special place we would take our special friends. Service and food were exemplary!
Attended A Christmas Carol at Trinity and headed over for a wonderful meal with friends. A Christmas Carol and dinner at Gracie’s is a Holiday Tradition. Wonder food great flavors and excellent service. More...
Delicious and perfect as always! We were in town visiting friends. Gracie’s always makes these moments special.
Gracie's was everything I expected. Nice atmosphere, great service and very knowledgable wait staff. Any questions were answered immediately and thoroughly. Food was presented perfectly and was delicious. Great place for farm fresh organic food prepared and presented exquisitely. Looking forward to our next dining experience at Gracie's. More...
Exquisite service from getting help with accommodations for my reservation to finding cookies in the cup holder when the valet brought the car around. Everything was delicious and impeccable. Staff are really skilled as well as very friendly and personable. A very special place! More...
Went to celebrate my wife’s birthday and they took several steps to make it a very special occasion for her - immediate acknowledgment by the host on arrival, hand written card with the table setting, complimentary bubbly pour to start the night, as well as a candle on her dessert. Expected maybe a couple of these but not all. I’m addition the wait staff was very professional and helpful in enhancing our dining experience and advising us on our wine and dinner choices - it’s clear they would make even a less special occasion a great experience. To top it all off the food was amazing - Through our three courses, every single dish was delicious. They also brought some bread and a few small bite “amuse-bouche” type items that we did not specifically order. Definitely plan to go again! More...
There is eating, then there's dining and then rarely, there is FINE DINING. Dining at GRACIES falls in the latter category. Superlatives are insufficient to describe a meal at Gracies. Of course, it starts with the food - it's inventive, impeccably prepared and meticulously served by a staff that understand the nuances of elevated service yet resists the stuffy formality that often accompanies it. But, ah, the devil's in the details and that's where Gracies rises to the extraordinary...if you're chilled by the air conditioning, they'll provide you with a luxurious pashmina wrap; if you're celebrating something, expect a call prior to arrival to learn about little "treats" they are prepared to provide you and our guests; when you retrieve your car from the valet, there'll be a packet of cookies on the console as a treat for your ride home. Little treasures of thoughtful caring that elevates Gracies to an experience not to be missed - if you're lucky, an experience to cherish in those special moments/events/celebrations that make you smile when remembered fondly. We can't wait for our next visit - hopefully soon. More...
Gracies is my favorite place in all of New England. Perfect every time!
The table setup and champagne toast at the start was a beautiful way to begin the evening. The 7-course tasting menu was fabulous! My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and are so grateful to the wonderful memories we will now have from our evening dining at Gracie’s. More...
Excellent in all aspects! Anniversary dinner pre-PPAC show. Timed perfectly.
Start to finish Gracies was amazing. All members of the team were professional, kind, and respectful. Kendal the event planner was better than we could have asked for and a big part of the reason we chose Gracies. She rolled with all of our changes and helped every step of the way. I have several severe allergies and the kitchen staff and head chef made it so I could eat any of the food offered at the wedding. All throughout the night the waitstaff was attentive and very responsive. The bartenders were amazing and provided fast service. I would absolutely have another event at Gracies, the food, drinks, ambiance and staff were amazing! More...
Lovely restaurant - delicious food - wonderful service - great location!
Harper and Sarah and everyone was great! A really enjoyable“dining” experience.
The meal was very good, service excellent. My only complaint is that the menu is very limited.
Excellent food and service. Enjoyed the gluten free options and the small bites given as an appetizer and dessert.
A holiday tradition to dine at Gracies after seeing a Christmas Carol at Trinity rep.
Amazing experience! Favorite restaurant in PVD! The service is incredible and the food is exquisite!
What a lovely evening we had at Gracie's, where we often choose to dine for special occasions. I was celebrating my birthday and we were treated with a Cava toast and lovely table greetings. Service was wonderful as always and the food was spectacular. We especially enjoyed the beet and burrata salad and the cod loin and duck. In the past when we have dined at Gracie's they had a prix fixe menu which was not the case this time around, so the evening was pricey but well worth it. We always recommend Gracie's to our friends and family for exceptional food, great wine selections, consistently good service and a lovely ambience. More...
One of the best dining experiences I have had. I and a friend came here to celebrate her birthday and the restaurant decorated the table and had a birthday card for her, which was very nice. The food was pretty good, we both ordered the 5-course tasting, and were very happy with all the courses. The waiters and waitresses were polite and elegant, and we felt welcomed in the place. The interior of the place was also cozy and pretty. Overall, we really liked the place and will come again for special occasions. More...
Greatest special occasion restaurant in Providence.
Gracie's has been our go-to spot for our wedding anniversary for the past couple years. We are never disappointed, we always have a wonderful experience. The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful. They go out of their way to make you feel special. More...
In a word...Amazing!! From start to finish the atmosphere... the food ...the wonderful staff... Gracie’s is the place to go for any special celebration or intimate evening!
I reserved a table for Friday November 22nd to celebrate my fiance's 27th birthday; his parents were also joining us, for a total party of 4. We all selected the Chef's 7 Course Tasting menu with wine pairings and found all the dishes incredibly divine. While my favorite was the autumnal inspired sea bass dish, my future family was enthralled by the seasonally appropriate wild boar pasta. The only fiasco we all mutually faced was that 4 of the 7 wine pairings were sweet and 2 of the 7 were smoky; we would have rather enjoyed a balanced variety of tannins, dryness, and body to our wines. The service was comprised of a plethora of skillsets- some front of staff certainly needed more training (we had a couple of incidents where the course was served and no one elaborated on the dish,) and others were exceptional. The experience and atmosphere were incredible and unforgettable, however as soon as we all arrived home we had terrible bathroom issues that left us out of commission. The cramping and frequent trips eventually subsided, but alas it left us a little weary.Ultimately, we highly recommend Gracie's for the experience, the delectable food, and courteous front of house staff. We do suggest that you bring Zantac or Pepcid for quality abdominal assurance, though! More...
No wait time with reservation. Great service. Friendly staff including coat check and valet. Can not wait to revisit.
As usual impeccable service and very wonderful meal.
For discerning palates which love well prepared, presented and served food.
Hmmm.. Where to start. My husband and I were married Sunday Nov 10, 2019. Our reception was at Gracie's restaurant and we had 83 guests attend. First off - Gracie's event coordinator, Kendal, was the reason wedding planning never became a burden. She honestly handled EVERYTHING. Any questions we had throughout the planning process were answered promptly. A few weeks before our event we changed a few pieces of our menu.. Kendal had it under control. I was worried that the space would feel very cramped but there was more than enough room. Guests were up on their feet dancing as soon as our dinner service ended. Now the restaurant staff - they went above and beyond. From the bartenders to the waitstaff, to the amazing chef and kitchen staff. When we arrived, we were able to steal a few minutes alone in the wine cellar where Kendal had glasses of champagne waiting for us. We did not join our cocktail hour so Kendal had a tray of hors d'oeuvres waiting for us at our table. Our guests raved about the food, drinks and service. No word of a lie, we were receiving calls all day Monday about the amazing food. I cannot recommend this venue enough. More...
We took a 5:00 reservation and arrived 5 minutes early. Unfortunately the doors did not open until 5:00, so we waited outside in the cold for a little while. The service was very good. We have been to Gracie’s a number of time and even had one of my company’s Christmas Parties there. This time the food was not up to par. The scallops were very small in comparison to our last experience. The espresso was so bitter, I had to send it back. I’m disappointed. More...
Beautiful experience from start to finish. Service top notch food exceptional and atmosphere warm friendly. I would highly recommend.
My wife and I love going to Gracie's once in while.This time unfortunately the food did not live up to our expectations based on past experiences. We will go back. We will not go for the degustation menu again unless we know what is coming. The scallop ceviche was nice. The pasta chestnut boar dish was very doughy not pleasant ... and I do love rustic. The cod dish I believe it was cod was superb.The venison tasted like duck did not make sense. The waiter told me it was New Zealand venison. I still think it was duck. Maybe venison seared in duck fat.The dessert usually an absolute delight at Gracie's was very bland. I did not enjoy the sorbet swimming in the watery "jus" at all.The wine pairing I enjoyed a lot. My wife had the alcohol free pairing which was nice. Gracie's is our choice when looking for the perfect meal. I don't mind the high cost. It's worth it. Not this time however.Klaus Kutter More...

Love the craft cocktails Food and service are awesome
The overall appearance and food were quite good, but it was so cold in the restaurant that it was hard to enjoy the night. My husband had a sweater on and was still cold. We asked a few times about turning the fans off or the temperature up and were dismissed other then saying they could bring us blankets...seriously?! I had to ask for my coat and eat dinner wearing my coat. Just not the night I had expected after reading multiple good reviews. Other diners around us also had coats around their shoulders to stay warm. Just weird! If it is below 30 degrees outside, a little heat inside is not a crazy thing to request. More...
Absolutely a wonderful dining experience. Loved our waitress- she was amazing - good recommendations for wine - non intrusive but always around. The Food was delicious and just perfectly seasoned with fresh ingredients / I can go on and on...... More...
Wow! Looking for a farm-fresh, locally sourced restaurant with fantastic service, ambiance, and food? Just had an amazing meal with my hubby at GraciesProv ! Wanting to have some fun, we opted for the 7 course wine paired menu and it was a taste sensation for the pallet (each course is a surprise): (1) scallop salad, (2) ox tail pasta, (3) foie gras c/walnut cake, (4) sea bass, (5) venison, (6) cheese plate, (7) burned butter ice cream c/sweet potato mousse. It’s no wonder it has been rated as the #1 dining experience in Providence. Highly recommend for regular dining or special occasions More...
A remarkable experience. The food was fantastic and the service matched perfectly. The chef's tasting menu was stunningly executed. The best meal I have ever had in Providence by a landslide.... More...
Excellent food and service. The playlist was superb.
Provided a very personal experience!
Came to Gracie's for an anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. Parking was a breeze with valet (and that cookie that was in my cup holder when picking up my car was delicious :P ) and even though we were a bit early we were able to be seated (YMMV). I had told them ahead of time of the occasion and we were treated to a sparkling wine toast and a nice little card with little stars on the table!On to the main event! I don't have enough words to describe delicious. Starting with a pate appetizer and amuse bouche between meals and enjoying 2 fantastic dinners. Ending with a creme brulee. Each looked like it was prepared well, presented elegantly, and tasted great.I would recommend based on my experience and will certainly be back for other occasions. More...
Fantastic! Food was awesome service was five star and the location was perfect.
Gracie's remains the foremost restaurant to celebrate any special occasion or just celebrate the finer things in life. Sometimes it's the little things that make a restaurant special. With a simple note that it was my wife's birthday, we arrived to find celebratory glitter on our table accompanied by a hand written birthday note and champagne glasses. When the waiter brought complementary sparking cider or champagne it set the tone for a great evening. The food was terrific as usual, with the octopus appetizer truly memorable. We had the duck and the cod entrees, both of which were well prepared and reminded you what fine dining is all about. The dessert tray of assorted cookies and confections was the perfect ending. The constructive note was our service was not up to previous levels, but it was a busy Saturday night so they get a pass. Don't miss Gracie's if you want to ensure your celebration is extra special. More...
My husband and I had visited Providence in the spring for Easter and ate at Gracie’s. Our waiter was so attentive and the food and wine were remarkable. We decided to return there for Veteran’s Day weekend. We had the same waiter, the wine that we had last time was still on the menu, and I think I ordered the same meal, sweetbreads to start and rabbit as a main course. And, we had cornflower blue colored ice cream that was phenomenal! I love this restaurant and highly recommend it. We’ll be back! More...
I would recommend Gracie’s to my fine food friends. My husband didn’t like his rigatoni because it wasn’t a red sauce. I enjoyed my courses and the creme brûlée was awesome. More...
For a very special night out, it was just such a perfect place to be. All at Gracie's and everything about it make it an experience to remember. It is VERY expensive, but, it gives you all the feels of a night to remember. More...
Everything was utterly delicious and it was a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion! Highly recommend the tasting menu!
the receptionist was soooo welcoming. Our waitress was unbelievable the entire night just and amazing dinner!
Wonderful Farm to Table Restaurant. When I am in the area again I would definitely make it back! Service and food were wonderful!
We love going to Gracies. Great food, drinks and friendly and informative service. This is our go to place in Providence and top 5 in New England!
So many delicious things, as always. Extra amuse bouche (my bouche, it was amused) of lamb sausage was a big hit - make more of that, please. It's next to impossible for me to order duck anywhere else, not. So incredibly perfect - crisp, salty outside, perfectly cooked inside. My only disappointment was the specialty cocktail. This is my second time ordering one that read like something I would love (bourbon, peach, aperol), but turned out to be very different tasting than expected. But the wine was yummy, so perhaps I'll stick to that in future. And - to top it all off - SNICKERS MACARON!!!! My favorite candy. SOOOO tasty and perfect. Thank you so much! More...
I recently went to Gracie's for my brother's wedding reception. y The staff was attentive and nice. The food was spectacular, creative, tasty, and aesthetically pleasing to all the senses. A great time was had by all. If you are ever in Rhode Island, you can't go wrong by dining at Gracie's! More...
Had a fantastic experience on my first visit to Gracie's. I went to celebrate an anniversary and was not disappointed in the service and the food. During the reservation process I indicated the reason for going and was offered a complimentary toast for the occasion. Unsure of what to chose for a beverage, we inquired with our waiter and what our potential dinner choices might be and got a great recommendation to pair with our meal. Between the courses, the amuse bouches were a pleasant surprise and a nice little way to really stand out from some other venues we have attended. It is an expensive dinner, so we will most likely reserve for only special occasions, but will definitely be back. More...
Celebrated our wedding anniversary. Table was set with glitter and a card. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne which all were nice added touches. Wasn’t crazy about the table location. Also we waited in the bar area for our table and were told someone would come over to take our drink order but no one ever came until my husband said something to the hostess. More...
The service was awesome. They even had a pair of eyeglasses for one of our party. Food was creative and delicious. Great place to go for a special occasion.
We lucked out. My partner won one of those Super tickets from Verizon and we were lucky enough to grab a dinner table at Gracies, on them. We started with champagne and a baby green salad with potato crisps. The micro greens they use in the salad are phenomenal and fresh. A server then came over with a spoon of toasted brioche, goat cheese and apple chutney. What a bite! I can't explain why but I instantly thought of an Asian profile in flavor. Next was a pear and lemon sorbet- beautiful pallet cleanserWe had the sausage and Roma tomato Ragu and split the herb roasted rabbit and gnocchi. The rabbit was so tender, and the skin was so crispy. YUM. Finally we finished with coffee and creme brûlée But wait.. our fabulous server had to put one last stop out and bring us two impeccable grape macaroons. Bravo. More...
Perfect. The fois gras was amazing and they were very flexible with my dietary needs.
Amazing dining experience. Great service and beautiful atmosphere. Thank you for making my Mom's birthday beautiful. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. Best creme brûlée to date! Looking forward to the ultimate dining experience of the Chefs tasting menu. A definite must especially paired with a show. A Providence gem! You need to experience this!!! More...
It was my wife’s birthday and they were absolutely amazing! The food was exceptional and our waiter was very knowledgeable and well versed in wine. We had the best seats in the house and it was perfect for a romantic special night! We also did the 7 course chef tasting (little disappointed that the head chef couldn’t find time to come out to the table so we could thank him for the menu selections). It was very diverse and the wine pairings were complemented the dishes perfectly. If you love good food, good wine and service; Gracie’s is a must! Looking forward to going again on a “regular” evening out to see if they perform just as well. More...
AMAZING experience. Looking forward to a return visit soon
Super accommodating to our reservation requests!
The food was delicious. The service was friendly and attentive - if a trifle formal. But the overall atmosphere of the restaurant hits it just right. Its warm and inviting and the tables are pleasantly spaced so you can have a conversation. We will definitely go back. More...
Top-notch experience. Great tasting menu paired with wines.
Bravo! The service staff sets the stage, welcoming you in, and attending to every detail. The ambience is casual elegance, candles lit in the clearest cleanest glass lanterns, and some glitter confetti on the table with a personalized birthday card to truly welcome. The food was exquisite. The amuse-boucher just exotic enough to delight and intrigue and with nothing to offend the non - adventurous in the crowd. The menu is limited, precluding recurring visits, but Gracies has become my new number One restaurant in the area for a special occasion. And, back to the wait staff - Personable, Knowledgeable (food, wine pairings, suggestions), and so very Lovely - they make the visit so very perfect. More...
We made the reservation to celebrate our anniversary. From arrival we were treated with respect and got to feel special. Arriving at our table, they had personalized our table with a card and decorated it. We had two wonderful servers who were attentive, professional and made us feel like we were the only patrons in the restaurant. We had the chefs tasting menu and it was phenomenal. They customized one course of the meal to my partners desire for the dry aged steak and paired a special wine with it. Overall it was an experience that neither of us will forget More...
It was a wonderful experience to work with Kendal, Jessie, and the whole kitchen and staff at Gracie's to create a beautiful day for my daughter's bridal shower. From the moment I contacted Kendal, it was a pleasure to plan this special day. The menu, décor, and favors....every detail was thought out perfectly and any special requests were handled perfectly with a smile. When we walked into Gracie's that morning, the room was so cozy and inviting...it gave me goosebumps. Everything was just so pretty and perfect and just what I had imagined. And the chefs prepared the most delicious food for their awesome staff to serve. My guests are still talking about the amazing presentation and service by the staff. I am so thankful for this wonderful memory that my daughter and I will share. Thank you Gracie's! More...
This was our first time at Gracie's and the food and service was amazing! Evan was very attentive and explained the menu options for us and gave some great suggestions. We had a great night out for our anniversary they made it extra special for us. More...
My favorite restaurant in Providence! My daughter and I always choose Gracies before we attend theater at Trinity Repertory Theatre and are never disappointed!
It was a nice experience. Friendly waiting staff and good food. It was a bit expensive but worth it.
Everything from start to finish was amazing! Will definitely be back next time we are in town!
Fantastic Anniversary Dinner!We had such a wonderful dinner here for our anniversary. From the moment we arrived we felt that the staff was so attentive and really made the meal so special. The mink fish and the tortellini dishes on the tasting menus were esp delicious as was the dessert. We had not been here in awhile and were so glad we returned!. More...
We celebrated out anniversary at Gracie’s and had a fantastic experience. The service was outstanding—attentive, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging. The tasting menu was superb. We had not been there in many years and were so glad we returned as they made our celebration a truly memorable experience. More...
Special Evening! Enjoyed every aspect of the night. Service was wonderful and the food perfect. We had the wine pairings which made it even better.
Very pleasant at the barbefore Trinity show.Great service,cocktails and food!
Food was terrific. Sweetbreads were exceptional.
We had a wonderful experience at Gracie’s for our Anniversary! The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. They even do a few little surprises for our anniversary, which meant a lot! More...
Anat and staff are absolutely wonderful! The food is spectacular! Every time we visit Providence, this restaurant is our first stop!
The food was creative, delicious with a classic presentation which made it more delicious than it was. Believe me I didn't think it was possible. Bravo!! Evan, our server was pleasent and professional. I will be back. More...
Amazing gourmet and inventive food
Anniversary was great thank you
Gracie’s is a classy restaurant in downtown Providence. The food is excellent ( I had the duck at our last visit), the service impeccable and the atmosphere great. Great place for dinner anytime but especially for a special occasion. More...
Just about a perfect mix of food and ambiance and the service is always terrific. One of the best places in Providence for dinner.
Top notch every time. Creative dishes expertly cooked.
This was my first experience at Gracie's and it did not disappoint!! High marks for the extraordinary service, the warm and eclectic ambience, and fantastic cuisine! !! Truly a wonderful dining experience!Gracie's has it all !!! Kudos to owner Ellen Slattery and Chef Matthew Varga!! More...
Excellent service and amazing cuisine
Outstanding food and great service
A very fine meal. My main gripe was the service, where we rarely saw our actual waiter, and instead had a team of people who were helpful, but faces were inconsistent. We were concerned about making the start time of a concert and ordered the entire meal (including dessert) at once, which was handled well. For dessert, my wife ordered an Irish coffee to compliment her chocolate-hazelnut dish, and the coffee never came during dessert (although my espresso AND a glass of Port came out immediately). When asking for the bill, I simply informed the waiter that we would like the coffee to be removed since we did not receive it. Instead, he insisted on putting the alcoholic drink into a to-go cup. Clearly, he was not thinking about open container laws while driving, or frankly, anything but the bottom line. It would have been far better customer service to remove the charge and not serve the coffee, better yet, to encourage us to stay longer and enjoy it on the house (we couldn’t, but the gesture is what counts here). I tried hard to understand the waiter’s motivation, and the only thing I can come up with is inexperience, or disregard for the customer. Our meal itself was prepared to very high standards, and we otherwise enjoyed the evening (our first time at Gracie’s). For the money spent on a meal for 2, it will be a while before we go back both because of the expense and the service. More...
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Love this place!!!
Lovely restaurant for a special occasion. Many special touches. Staff is excellent.
Food was amazing! We did the 7 course chefs choice and each dish was soooo yummy! :)
We visited this restaurant for the first time and all we can say is WOW! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday and we were treated like VIPs from the time we walked in until we got in our car for the valet. Elizabeth, our waitress and the entire staff were top notch. We were initially presented with a beautiful anniversary card and confetti on our table, and from the drinks to the food we were in awe! At the end of our delicious meal, we were treated to an outstanding dessert to conclude a celebration. We even got cookies left for us in our vehicle from the valet! This a place we will continue to visit again and again. Thank you, Gracie's! More...
Excellent service Above and beyond. Delicious food interesting side dishes.
This is by far in our top three restaurants of a lifetime. The service is exceptional and the food is so creative, presented beautifully and each bite is scrumptious. Highly recommend for each and every time you choose to dine out! More...
Gracie's is, hands down, our favorite restaurant in Providence, in terms of food, service, and atmosphere. So, our expectations were high around our wedding.
They absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way.
Kendal and her team were incredibly helpful every step of the way, from brainstorming about the use of the space, to recommending other vendors, to keeping things moving smoothly on the night of the event.
We held our dinner and dancing in the main upstairs restaurant space, and it was simply beautiful. We actually used the downstairs private dining room as a separate space for the large-ish number of kids (nieces, nephews, etc) that we invited, and Gracie's pulled together a great kids menu for them. We got to use the wine room as a little sanctuary space to get some quiet when we needed it.
The food was spectacular across the board. It was tasted amazing, and looked beautiful. Our photos look wonderful. We couldn't been happier. More...
We did the tasting menu and it was fabulous! Highly recommend it
Went with my wife for a special anniversary (which I noted when making the reservation). We got seated a little late, relative to our reservation time, but they comped us our drinks from the bar, so that was nice. There was a little card on the table with a Maya Angelou quote which was appropriate to the occasion -- my wife liked that :-)Food and service were excellent; we both felt it was the best we had enjoyed in quite a while. I had the duck and my wife had the scallops; both were great. They gave us multiple amuse bouches along the way, which we enjoyed. The waiter was knowledgeable about the wine options. More...
Our wedding at Gracies was an absolute dream. Our vision was brought to life by the incredible team at Gracies, from the planning to the execution and the divine meal.
My husband and I had a simple wedding goal; to eat really delicious food with our closest family and friends, and we did just that at Gracies. Kendal was outstanding with planning every step, and helping to accommodate changes to the plans and problem solved where I needed!
The meal and service was as expected, top tier. The team worked to piece together a beautiful backdrop to our brunch. Every detail about the day was perfect! More...
Nice find in Providence. Sat at the bar and the service was great, loved the salad, my GF loved the foie gras. Scallops were excellent
Without a doubt..THE BEST food and service I’ve experienced!
Really awesome experience here at Gracie's. I've heard a lot about them and was really excited to experience them. Glad I did, didn't leave disappointed what so ever. The service was great and the staff was really friendly. Had the Heirloom Tomatoes which were incredible, the crescent farms duck was really tender and juicy. Definitely loved that. And for the 3rd I had the Cherry Miso Cake. SUCH a bomb cake. Wow! I had to keep myself from getting anymore. But it was truly a great experience. I definitely recommend it here. More...
Another superb dining experience! Gracie's is consistently excellent. We had the grilled octopus, potato gnocchi, the duck and the halibut. All were delicious. Even the bread was outstanding. If there is a better restaurant in Providence we haven't found it. More...
It was my girlfriend's birthday and we had a wonderful dinner at Gracie's. We ordered Chief tasting 7 courses, we loved all the dishes except the cheeses, we just didn't like it. The service is perfect, waiters are gentlemen and are very patient, friendly, and respectful.Would definitly go there another time. This is the first birthday dinner I had with my girlfriend and I hope we could have another 80 birthday dinners together. More...

Excellent quality of the food and paring
Wonderful service and delicious food from start to finish! After I made a reservation the staff called me to tell me there is complimentary valet because it's raining out they thought we should know that . Very considerate and appreciated ! We shared the cheese platter, ricotta rigatoni, scallops and blueberry chocolate tart. We also enjoyed all the little small touches... A variety of breads, intermezzo between courses, mint macaroons at the end and chocolate chip cookies in my truck when we retrieved it from valet! Nice work!!! More...
Amazing restaurant. Delicious food. Got to experience the 7 course meal, like they say "is like going on a blind date" with wonderful results. Will visit again
Wow, I will say that we can appreciate fine dining, and this restaurant hits that note on all facets. We have ate at most of the better rest in Providence and we will be back to GRACIES. Very good food,plating,staff,drinks, comfort, ambiance Mike More...
Gracie’s never fails to excel - food and service were exemplary as always - we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday , and the restaurant provided several extra touches which made the evening all the more special !
Gracies is our favorite restaurant in RI. Service and food impeccable.
It was spot on ,food ,service ,they even helped with my proposal and anniversary
This is the best restaurant in Providence. The dining staff take pains to offer you the best service possible, including keeping notes on your dining preferences. While you may order a three course meal, you are almost always offered an amuse bouche or other small tastings between entrees. It is truly a highlight restaurant and leaves the other "5 star" establishments far behind. Even my kids love it there. More...
What a gem of a restaurant. The food is memorable, the wait staff so attentive and friendly and you feel that you are in a special place. This is my fourth visit to Gracie's and it is always consistent. More...
Gracie’s is my favorite restaurant. Top notch service, food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
Amazing experience. Did a 5 course tasting, they were able to do the meal vegetarian for me, and it was amazing. Just a great experience overall. I definetly reccomend and I will definetly be returning. More...
Outstanding, as usual! We really enjoyed our meal and service! Thanks!
We celebrated our 1st anniversary at Gracie’s! I got married here so it was the perfect place to come back to a year later. We were seated at a specially reserved table with a hand written anniversary card with well wishes and poured complimentary champagne to toast the occasion.My husband and I both ordered the 7course chefs tasting with wine pairings and I knew it’d be the best meal I’d had all year long! The staff were so informed about the wine pairings and the flavors that would be highlighted based on the dish that we’d receive. My favorite course was the fois gras and lemon square. The lemon squares were so damn delicious that they sent us home with one! The food was absolutely delicious and I didn’t want the courses to end! Lastly Ellie’s bakery provided us with a complimentary anniversary cake modeled after our wedding cake! It was such a special occasion with delicious food and wine! An absolutely perfect night made so special by all the staff at Gracie’s! Can’t wait to go back! More...
This was our first time at Gracies and we loved everything about it! Food and service amazing, beautiful decor and very comfortable. We were going to PPAC after dinner and they were very helpful to make sure we had an enjoyable dinner and got to the show on time. Make a reservation. You won’t regret it. More...
We arrived for our 5:30 reservation about 10 minutes early and were seated right away. Water was delivered immediately. The waiter came about 10 min later for our drink order which then took over 1/2 hour to receive. The food took even longer and at that price point, I would expect better. Had tickets to see hamilton and got to the theatre with one minute to spare. Couldn't even go to bathroom. Very disappointed. Expected much better. More...
Gracie’s never disappoints. Food was absolutely delicious and service was exceptional. I do think it’s a tad overpriced but still one of my favorites.
Our experience at Gracie's was exceptional.The service was excellent, all of the employees were knowledgable friendly and attentive. The food was extraordinary in taste and presentation.We will definitely return. More...
Five star restaurant from beginning to end. Had an excellent time food was fantastic.
Fantastic as always--service, food, ambiance--can't be beat! It was our anniversary, and I mentioned that when I made the reservation. Our table was sprinkled with glitter when we were seated; the waiter started us with complementary sparkling wine, and the staff even gave us an anniversary card! It was a lovely evening. More...
The chef’s tasting was absolutely phenomenal. We loved our experience and would definitely attend again.
This was our first visit to Gracie's and we were very happy with our meal and experience. We did the five course tasting menu with the wine pairing and added the foie course from the seven course tasting menu. We loved the food and were impressed with the wines their sommelier chose for the pairings. Our servers Leslie and Sarah were lovely, engaging and always happy to answer our questions about the food and wine. It was a perfect meal to celebrate a special occasion with my wife, and we will definitely be back. More...
Great meal! Excellent service from Jim and Hannah! The cheese board was perfect, not too big and nicely varied. The sword fish was great. Wine and beer lists were strong
Overall a great meal and experience.Wine,service,and food was great.Our entree took a long time to get to the table,so I think there might have been a problem in the kitchen. Our server brought out a small complimentary pasta dish,which was great.Dessert,which were the ricotta donuts were insanely awesome.Caution:The meal is going to cost you,but worth it More...
Everything about the experience was exceptional. The food was wonderful, and the service was even better.
Everything about our dinner was absolutely outstanding. From the first bite (cheese board) to the last (asst confections) were pure mouthful of flavor. My swordfish was among the best I have ever had and my RAVED about the pork.Our server. Evan, was first rate and the rest of the of the team made our night most memorable. Very Highly Recommended More...
It was fantastic! We actually had not been to Gracie’s for awhile, and we don’t know why. The food was absolutely wonderful, with service that was equally superb. We will return soon!!!!
Fantastic as always!
Wonderful food and service!
Loved everything about our experience. Chose it as our second wedding anniversary.
We had our wedding (ceremony & reception) at Gracie's in the main restaurant (not the smaller private dining space downstairs). From the moment we first contacted Kendal, the event coordinator, we knew we were in good hands. She's a phenomenal communicator and was expert in helping us to realize our vision for the day. Every aspect of the planning process was stress-free and the event itself was flawless. Our 75 guests were absolutely in love with the food, the decor, the friendliness of the staff-- everything! And the cake!! Oh my, the cake that Ellie's bakery made for us was a dream! We're truly over the moon with how spectacular the day was. Thank you, Gracie's team! More...
I don’t even know where to begin! My husband and I got married at Gracie’s this past Saturday and it was perfection thanks to Kendal and her team! !!! From our first interaction via email I knew it was going to be amazing. We instantly fell in love with the intimate private dining room, fell in love even more after our tasting, and then fell head over heels the night of our wedding. The setup, decor, and ambiance was more than I ever imagined...I walked in and got teary-eyed because it was so magical. All of our guests raved about the service, food, and drinks!!! I cannot recommend Gracie’s enough!!!! More...
Gracie's and Kendal in particular (the Catering & Events Director), was wonderful in helping my husband and I plan the rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. They really went above and beyond by creating a custom menu for us. It was fully vegan, and largely soy and gluten free 3-course menu. We had about 50 guests (vegans and non-vegans alike) and everyone was commenting on the delicious meal and irresistible desserts. The food was local, fresh, and creative. Kendal also helped us navigate every detail of the event including customized meal/place cards and arranging to play the music we picked. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Gracie's and highly recommend them. I think it would be a great idea if Gracie's incorporated and advertised their capabilities for a full vegan menu as a way to draw additional business. I will certainly book another event there when it comes up :) Thank you! More...
My husband and I chose Gracie's for our mid-size wedding reception last month (73 guests). From start to finish the experience was amazing!
Kendal was very responsive to all of our questions via email from the get go- this was very important for us because we live in NYC and couldn't easily do a face to face meeting. She was also very upfront with costs including tax and tip from our first inquiry, this is not always the case when looking at other locations. Our entire reception took place on the top (street level) floor of the restaurant with enough room for a small DJ setup and a dance floor. Gracie's is already elegantly decorated so we only purchased table numbers and some small green plants for the tables and the place looked beautiful. Everyone was especially impressed with the food. My husband and I had actually never eaten at the restaurant prior to our tasting, but given Gracie's reputation we knew we wouldn't be disappointed. The food here is EXCELLENT. The sentence "you could cut the filet with a fork" was used by several family members. They even had vegan options for myself and other guests which were thoughtful and delicious. Staff members paid particular attention to guests that have food allergies and were incredibly warm and accommodating to everyone. Overall just incredible service. Other special touches throughout dinner included palate cleansers which were a welcome surprise to everyone.
Although the reception took place on the upper floor, during cocktail hour my husband and I used the wine cellar room for our own private cocktail hour. I am really glad Kendal suggested this area for us because it allowed us to unwind and have some alone time prior to joining our guests. Upon our arrival the room was already prepared with an array of hors d'oeuvres and a meze sampling for us and Kendal quickly grabbed our cocktails before leaving us in private. We also signed our marriage license in this space prior to entering the reception.
Once we entered the reception I didn't have to worry about a thing. Kendal and her staff ensured everyone and everything was taken care of. After the reception I noticed Kendal had left us a note and small gift which is a wonderful touch. Overall, my husband and I are very happy we chose Gracie's for our wedding. We were able to stay within budget while giving our guests an experience that exceeded all expectations. (Seriously, your guests will think you spent far more on your wedding than you actually did!) More...
Gracie’s was absolutely perfect. Kendal literally took care of everything for us (we even got to drop off our card box/ favors/ guest book set up a few days before and she organized a table for them in the cutest way). They made sure our day was as stress-free as possible. It’s been a few weeks since the wedding, and our friends are still raving about the food (specifically the short rib station we had set up, and also the s’mores station we had!). If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change I thing. It was everything we we had hoped for! More...
Jason was prompt, attentive and easy to work with.
We were looking for a venue for our micro-wedding party (7 people) after the ceremony. Gracie's had a private "wine room" which was the PERFECT size for our group. We booked the room (for free!!) and opted for the 7-course tasting menu, which all in all took about 3 hours. Everything from the room decor to the service to the food was divine. I worked with Kendal who is truly a master event planner. Every time I had a question, she immediately replied and was very helpful. I wanted a wedding cake and Gracie's requires you to buy a cake with their sister store, Ellie's bakery. While I was initially disappointed by this requirement I was BLOWN AWAY by how good the cake from Ellie's was and how stunning it was when we saw it. I had a single-tier carrot cake and asked for the decorations to be something similar to what was displayed on their instagram a swirled frosting with chocolate shards and macarons on top. I was shocked by how beautiful our little wedding cake was when we arrived. They even set up the cake to be sliced by us initially so my husband and I could have our "cake cutting" ceremony. When we left we were given a sweet note/gift by Kendal and the Gracie's team. Everything from start to finish was absolutely amazing. More...
Before we even picked a venue, we knew we wanted Gracie’s to be a part of the wedding. We had one of our most memorable dates there and it’s always been a favorite restaurant spot of ours.
Kendal is a saint, we probably emailed back and forth 25+ times, with our plans ever shifting, before we settled on having Gracie’s cater our wedding.
Kendal and the team at Gracie’s are nothing short of amazing. We met multiple times leading up to the wedding: introductory meeting / dinner, walking through the venue with Kendal and Ellen, and creating the menu with Chef Matt and Chef Melissa. We knew we wanted a more interactive party, so we had passed apps and food stations throughout the night. Here’s a small selection: artisan cheese & charcuterie, braised pork belly & lobster salad profiteroles hors d’oeurves, gnocchi & street taco station, and 3 different kinds of plattered macarons.
On top of catering, Kendal acted as our wedding coordinator, ensuring that the whole night went according to plan. We couldn’t have asked for a better night. Huge thanks to Kendal and the Gracie’s team! We would absolutely recommend Gracie’s for catering your next event only if you value delicious food and 5 star service.

My husband and I are so lucky we found Gracie's in our search for a wedding reception venue - the entire experience, from initial inquiry all the way through the night itself, just could not have been better.
First of all, the on site events manager, Kendal, was not only incredibly detailed and thorough, but also so friendly and approachable - she and Jessie, the events assistant, made the planning process go so smoothly that we truly felt completely ready and relaxed as the countdown to the wedding day reached 0.
The reception itself was absolutely spectacular thanks to Kendal and the entire Gracie's event staff (including those at their sister bakery, Ellie's, which made our delicious cake) - not only did my husband and I enjoy every minute of it, but we're still hearing from our guests about how much they loved the food (delicious and full of unique touches), the atmosphere (so cozy, especially with their Christmas decorations - we didn't buy any floral arrangements because the space itself is beautiful as is), and the hospitality (top notch - the servers and all the staff were friendly, professional, and thoughtful, and managed to make everyone feel both at home and completely taken care of).
I can't recommend Gracie's enough! More...
In mid December, we had our Rehearsal Dinner of 50 people downstairs at Gracies. The venue, the food, and the staff were outstanding! People loved it and really loved the food. The food really is of 5 star quality! The menu offered many choices (people went nuts over the duck), the bellinis were very tasty and the Christmas decorations were a nice touch. Kendal is great to work with--she is very professional, experienced and a very nice person! I really enjoyed working with her and she had terrific ideas in order to make the dinner very special. Gracies is a very special venue that you will love. I highly recommend this venue. More...
WOW! We cannot say more positive things about working with Kendal and the team at Gracie's. First off, Kendal is so amazing to work with.
She is so genuine, kind, thoughtful, and easy going which made the planning process so stress free and simple. She is made for this job! While most people dread the planning process, my now husband and I really enjoyed it and I believe it was because Kendal made it really enjoyable for us. While planning, Kendal responded very timely too all our questions and tended to all our needs. She was also very mindful of our budget and made sure to stick to it throughout the process which we very much appreciated. Also during the wedding, her and the assistant coordinator, Jessie, were there every step of the day. I had not seen the main dining room space until I walked into the dining room for my ceremony, and had no doubts that everything would be where it needed to be and I was right, it looked incredible.
As far as the space itself, Gracie's is a beautiful venue for a smaller wedding. We had around 82 guests and the space definitely felt full, but comfortable. We also decided to have our ceremony in the main dining room, and while it was tight (Which we were given a head's up about), it was intimate and I couldn't imagine having it any other way. We had so many positive comments from our guests about how intimate and cozy it felt. After our ceremony for the cocktail hour, Kendal and the staff set us up in the wine room in the downstairs part of the restaurant with a platter of the hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of prosecco. It was a great breather for myself, husband, our parents, best man and maid of honor to sit, drink, and eat before continuing on with the night. It also gave us the space to sign our marriage license with our friend who married us, and to enjoy the first moments to celebrate being husband and wife!
Next to the wine room, is another private dining room that is bigger than the wine room, but a big enough space to fit some high top tables and our open air photo booth. There is a bar in there as well which was setup with a water station for our guests. The main dining room is also a great color for any florals and colors you decide to have. We went with whites, golds, and greens, and our greenery and florals looked amazing in the space. Gracie's used their candles which are a mix of clear, white, and gold placed throughout our centerpieces, garland, on the tables, and around the restaurant which made the space feel cozy and warm. Our DJ had a perfect spot set up in their private booth at the front of the restaurant, and our dance floor felt huge! We had 2 long tables set up for dinner, and were taken away once dinner was over. The tables were out of the spacec before I realized it and it was a great open space for dancing. There was still plenty of seating in the bar, downstairs in their private dining room, and on the outside perimeter of the main dining room for non dancers.
The staff at Gracie's was so amazing and accommodating and the food is indescribable. One thing my husband and I wanted for our guests was great food and Gracie's delivers that effortlessly. Every dish was prepared and plated so elegantly and looked beautiful. Our guests really loved the palate cleansers that were served before both 1st and 2nd course, and raved about our mini donuts that were placed on the bar for the taking, as well as macarons! Kendal even brought my husband and I a plate of the donuts to us so we wouldn't miss out on trying each kind! We also had a cutting cake which was not passed out to our guests, but for us to enjoy while cutting and save for our 1 year anniversary. It was a pretty large cake for a cutting cake, so my immediate family was also able to enjoy some of it while we were away on our honeymoon.
If you're looking for a small, intimate wedding that does not break the bank, we totally recommend Gracie's as your venue! We cannot thank Gracie's enough for making our wedding day literally the best day ever! More...
I don't even know where to begin. Gracie's was filled with the most responsive, detail oriented, kind, supportive and flexible staff imaginable. As a pretty low key (read disorganized) bride they made my wedding happen. It was gorgeous, fun, so professional, VERY delicious and beautiful. Kendal helped me every step of the way through wedding planning and answered all of my silly questions with such enthusiasm. From the first meeting to being there the night of my wedding Kendal and the staff were phenomenal to work with. The process of planning a wedding could not have been easier with Gracie's and they ensured the whole day ran smoothly. My guests were raving about the food, including my father who was a chef, and everyone was so full and well fed with quality tasty food the entire night. They accommodated several of my guests with food allergies and picky eaters. The staff was understanding and knowledgable about all of the allergens and ingredients of the food. The bread there made me tear up it was so good. The prices were comparable to other wedding venues which was a pleasant surprise for an upscale restaurant. They also had the most flexible open bar options to choose from. They saved us hor d'oeuvres to have when we arrived on our wedding day along with our preferred drinks, and they left small treats for my guests in their cars. They had the menus customized with our names, and guests were able to choose their meals the night of. There were so many more details they did to make our day perfect. You will not be disappointed with how above and beyond this gem of a wedding venue goes for all couples getting married! More...
We wanted a small intimate dinner for our wedding and Gracie's was perfect. Kendall was just the best and easiest to work with for all the planning. The room was perfect and had its own bar and great atmosphere. Jessie and all the staff that evening were so awesome and attentive. The food was of course so amazing and everyone still talks about how great it was. We wanted an evening of great friends, food, drinks and love and Gracie's was perfect. I would recommend to everyone and we look forward to going back for anniversary dinners. More...
My daughter decide to have a small, intimate wedding that would be with her closest family and the best food possible in the area and Gracie's didn't disappoint us. It was perfect. We had a private room with delicious food and exceptional service. My family and I have had the pleasure of dinning at Gracie's before but my daughter's in laws had not and they loved it. I heard "this is the best meal I've ever had from her mother in law." It was nice to be able to share the experience with them. We loved working with Kendal the Event Director and I couldn't have asked for a better person than Jess, that over saw the whole night. We didn't have to worry about anything, she's a pro and a joy to be around. We couldn't be happier with how wonderful the night was. More...
We challenged Gracie's & Ellie's with an offsite reception at our family's home on Block Island, over Labor Day weekend nonetheless. Did they pull it off? You bet! When it all came together it truly felt like magic. From the service, signature cocktails, the perfect plating of the entrees, late night snacks, the building of our macaron tower, and the brunch the next day....it was hard to find a request that they would say no to and that wasn't perfectly executed. It was a dream for us to have our favorite Providence restaurant cater out on the island and showcase the best of the Rhode Island culinary arts. Many of our guests are still talking about the food at the reception as the best wedding food they've ever had. They're not wrong! We would recommend Gracie's & Ellie's to anyone looking to create an enchanting experience while working with some of the top professionals in the business. Special thanks to Events Director, Kendal Fitzsimmons who kept track of every detail and kept us sane! More...
My now husband and I had our brunch wedding reception here on September 15th, 2018. From the moment we stepped foot into Gracie’s it was love at first site. Then, we met Kendall and it sealed the deal! Kendal, Gracie’s and all the staff are the most warm, pleasant and amazing people you will ever meet. The times we had to meet Kendal at Gracie’s to go over things for our special day, we felt like we were visiting family! All staff from the valet to the waiters new us by our first names. What amazed us the most was when they mentioned our wedding day! Each and every staff member goes above and beyond no matter what the situation is! The food was absolutely out of this world, the guests are still talking about how they have never tasted anything so great especially for it being wedding food! The cake from Ellie’s their sister bakery was to die for, with my husband being a desert fanatic he loved it as did myself and all of our guests. We cannot say enough about how amazing everything was from the food to the service. We are truly grateful for all that Gracie’s and the staff has done to make our day one for the books! We cannot wait to go back for our anniversaries and just to say hello! We can genuinely say we love you guys and we thank you! Mr. and Mrs. Harold Clark :) More...
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Gracie’s 7/21/18. It was everything we had hoped for. Kendal the Events Director met all our needs and then some! The venue was beautiful, the wait staff fantastic and the food AMAZING! We are still receiveing positive comments from our guests. Do not pass Gracie’s by. Take a look you will not be sorry. Beth&Chas More...
We've always dined at Gracie's for special occasions (Valentine's, anniversaries), but they did an amazing job with our rehearsal dinner as well!
Kendal is absolutely the best when it comes to communication. She responded to every question I had (I am overtly paranoid with every detail) and ensured things would run smoothly. The complimentary tasting is exactly as we expected, just as amazing as it is to dine there for any other occasion.
The night of the rehearsal dinner was gay pride and a parade was scheduled to pass by the restaurant, but Kendal coordinated with the valet to ensure that we'll be able to make it in without a problem. We really appreciated her responsiveness, as we were nervous the parade would block us out.
The dinner itself was fabulous. The decor was simple yet had a nice ambience. The wait staff were very friendly, courteous, and professional, and catered to our every needs to make sure everyone had a wonderful evening. They always made sure that we (bride and groom) were doing ok, and checking in periodically throughout the night, which was very reassuring.
Overall, Gracie's never disappoints, and will always be our restaurant to return to for special occasions. Their quality in food and service, from the wait staff to the valet, are unmatched and maintain that quality through their wedding events. More...
Our son had their wedding at Gracie's. It was a dream of an affair and the service was stellar.
Every detail covered.. no guest went without-so so very accommodating. It was their favorite restaurant and is now it is their anniversary go to place to remember their special day. The staff is wonderful, the food amazing and the atmosphere and attention to detail is like no other- We highly recommend it to anyone who wants an intimate experience with the best there is to offer. Even when the band was going to be finished at Midnight- the restaurant staff said they would stay because there were over 50 guests still wanting to dance and party- It ended at 2:00am and everyone who stayed walked to their hotel room down the block.. What a night to remember.. thanks Gracie's !

We knew when we started planning our RI summer backyard wedding from our home in California that it would be a challenge - 130 guests, weather risks, and the long distance communication all seemed daunting.
But from our first email exchange with Kendal, we breathed a huge sigh of relief. Kendal, a natural communicator and organizer, never lets any detail slip through the cracks. She gave us space when we needed to think, and was right there when we needed help executing a decision. She helped us keep track of vendors and payments, chimed in with seasoned advice when we needed direction, and never let us forget how exciting it is to have a wedding.
Kendal, Ellen and the Gracie’s team carried this same philosophy through the week of the wedding. They came to our house multiple times to check deliveries and be a part of the rehearsal. Because of their efforts, our ceremony went off without a hitch.
Then, the food! The servers expertly managed the pace of our family-style meal. They were at the same time ultra professional and down to earth. They were there when we needed them, truly reading our minds and setting a natural flow of the event. The food was out of this world - and I know, because the servers and Kendal made a huge effort to make sure my husband and I ate! Plus, Chef Matt created a special vegetarian gnocchi with all my favorite vegetables!
After dinner and dancing, we headed to the backyard for dessert and entered into the “heaven on earth” portion of the evening. Thanks to Gracie’s, the yard was lit up like a midsummer night’s dream. The homemade marshmallow s’mores around our fire pit tasted like pure joy. My brothers ate the leftovers for breakfast!
We recommend Gracie’s to anyone who wants a truly special event to remember: intimate, elegant, creative, personal and fun. Gracie’s has a special place in our heart and we hope to celebrate many anniversaries there for years to come! More...
We selected Gracie’s for our wedding rehearsal. Leading up to the event, our communication with Kendal was like talking to a friend about planning our event. She was responsive, accommodating to our requests, and so pleasant to work with! The night of the event the food, service, and ambiance all came together beautifully. We cannot wait to come back and enjoy Gracie’s as a married couple! More...
Kendal and Janna and the whole team at Gracie’s made our wedding a wonderful experience! Everything was perfect: food, service, attentiveness, ambience. Our guests were over the moon by how delicious everything was! Wonderful memories were created, and we thank everyone for making it such a special night! More...
My wedding was held at Gracie's on March 7th. Everything was on point, and even exceeded my expectations! From Kendall's attentiveness and her DJ recommendation, to the quality of the food and the excellent service from all the staff, up to last minute accommodations, I loved everything! Our guests raved about the food and the place. We had so much fun and really enjoyed our wedding - it truly was everything we wished for! Thank you, Gracie's! More...
My family just hosted a wonderful rehearsal dinner at Gracie's this past week. We had about 35 guests and a short time line to get our dinner in, and Gracie's was so quick to serve, clear, and make our guests comfortable.
We hosted a buffet dinner, and the quality was amazing.
The bartenders and staff were so friendly and willing to do anything for guests. Without a doubt, I would recommend them to anyone looking for a private room for a great dinner! The wedding was right across the street at the Library. More...
A wedding, bridal shower or engagement party is meant to be special and memorable. This is what you get at Gracie's and so much more!
On April 14, we celebrated my daughter's bridal shower at Gracie's and it was AMAZING! The food, the service and ambiance are exceptional and your guests will relax and truly enjoy themselves. I have received numerous messages from our guests saying that it was, by far, the best shower they have ever attended and that the food was phenomenal. I can't stop raving about the food, presentation and service!
Kendal is a pro at planning and anticipating your needs, and is so enjoyable to work with. Gracie's will do everything they can to accommodate your needs and wishes and make your dreams come true. They went above and beyond to make this a beautiful, magical day that we will always treasure! More...
Though I now live in upstate NY, I went to grad school in Providence and spent lots of time at Gracie's. My husband and I returned to Providence to get married, and thought of no better place to hold our rehearsal dinner. Kendal was such a joy to work and plan with, and so incredibly proactive/helpful/responsive to all my questions. We reserved the private dining room downstairs for the evening, which was beautifully set up and decorated for us when we arrived. Kendal came downstairs to say hello and check in, which was really above and beyond. They also printed menus for us as a memento which was really appreciated, and - as always - the service was incredible. Thank you so much for making that evening so wonderful for us! More...
AMAZING!!!! I can't say enough about Gracie's and their staff when it comes to weddings. We had our wedding reception at Gracie's over Labor Day weekend in 2017, and the planning process could not have been easier. Kendal and Bryan took such good care of me and now husband. No detail was left overlooked by the team, and the food was nothing short of spectacular. Guests continue to rave about the food! All in all- Gracie's and their entire team, made our night magical! More...
Every single person that worked with us at Gracie’s went above the call of duty to ensure we had a magical wedding! The food was simply amazing and our guests raved about it being the best wedding food they have ever had! !! My wife and I can’t wait to go back for a date night!!! More...
Gracie's is one of our favorite restaurants in Providence, and decided to have our rehearsal dinner there. While our experiences at Gracie's have always been wonderful, working with Kendal to plan our dinner was the best experience was so easy, and she really helped us craft something special for our friends and family. Not only was everyone floored by the food, but warmth of the service and attention to detail was so far beyond what we could have expected. We'll always hold a special place in our hearts for Gracie's and their amazing team! More...
My wife and I had a small wedding at Gracie’s in August. It was absolutely beautiful, the food was amazing and they had no issue accommodating some last minute add on guests. I wouldn’t change a thing!
Gracie's was a fantastic location for our Rehearsal Dinner Venue the night before our wedding! They accommodated all of our needs, and the private downstairs venue was perfect for dining and enough space for the little kids to run around too! The entire staff was fantastic and very helpful, and their simultaneous plate serving with such a large table was quite impressive! More...
Gracie's is by far the most elegant venue to host an event in all of Rhode Island. This is where my husband and I had our first date, I hosted his surprise 30th birthday party here and we just had our wedding rehearsal dinner in Gracie's beautiful private event space - and WOW they never disappoint.
Working with Kendall is so amazing! She personally makes sure the event goes off seamlessly, caters to your individual needs, and offers ideas/advice that you may not have thought of on your own to really make your party sparkle! Treating your guests to the Gracie's experience is so unforgettable. In my opinion, the food alone is enough of an experience for your guests...but when you couple that with the ambiance of the event space and the romance of the restaurant you are sure to create a once in a lifetime type of party. I highly, highly recommend hosting any and all of your events here because there is NOTHING else like this place.
My wife and I celebrated our marriage this past weekend with a rehearsal dinner / cocktail party at Gracie's and we can not recommend them enough.
Every single part of working with them was an absolute pleasure; from the incredibly generous (and delicious) preparatory chef's-tasting (complimentary with the booking!), to the orchestration of the final event - full of nothing but laughter and smiles.
Kendal, the Catering & Events Director, is an absolute wonder. Working with her was so smooth, her communication reliable and clear - we never felt any stress whatsoever in the whole process (which must be some kind of divine miracle, when do you ever hear about stress-free wedding planning ). We attribute that to Kendal and her unbelievable dedication. And we had a lot of requests - our family makes maple syrup, so we were hoping to incorporate that into the food, which they did with enthusiasm. Gracie's sister bakery Ellie's also supplied a number of desserts for our actual wedding the following day, specifically a Macaron tower with 3 custom flavors and 5 unique pies. Due to some last minute plan shifting on our end, some of our requests were made fairly late - but Kendal and Gracie's handled everything efficiently and joyfully.
And about that maple syrup - Chef Melissa wielded that stuff with complete magic! We just told her to do whatever she wanted with it, and what she came up with was not only delicious but it honored our hard work, and the syrup, with such expertise - it brought us to tears. The complexity of flavor that she was able to achieve was really something special.
We will 100% work with Gracie's and Ellie's again soon. Kendal and Chef Melissa and the entire team are doing it right, and we are so so thankful to have had all of them as a part of this incredible moment in our lives. More...
Gracie's and the entire team was absolutely amazing! We hired them to cater an off-site rehearsal dinner. They set up everything, made the best food I've ever had at a rehearsal dinner or wedding, and cleaned up! Everything was super easy, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more professional to my guests. I am still hearing people rave about how great it was! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!! Thank you Gracie's!!!! More...
We held my daughter's bridal shower at Gracie's and it was everything I hoped for an more. It's actually our favorite restaurant so we knew the food would be outstanding (Chef Matt is so talented), and the venue itself is charming. Kendal, the event manager is organized, enthusiastic and definitely loves her job. She walked us through everything painlessly and rearranged the seating several times to accommodate our needs. She has the patience of a saint and always a smile on her face. The staff was outstanding from the bar service to the wait staff. Our buffet meal was presented beautifully. They even took our table decorations and set them out for us. We felt relaxed through the day, and Kendal helped guide things along without any rush at all. I highly recommend Gracies! More...
First time at Gracie's and it was not disappointing. Everything was excellent! All the little extras did not go unnoticed. The food was superb: octopus app, duck entree, dessert! Drinks as well. Best Cosmo!Evan and Jim served us and did an outstanding job making us feel welcomed, not rushed and satisfied.Even met the chef who was so genuine and friendly. He works wonders in the kitchen! A true talent.This was a special treat for me and while I can't really afford to visit that often, I look forward to the next time I can go! More...
Not only is the food top notch and fresh, the service is impeccable. I always admire restaurants that offer a menu that makes it difficult to choose just one entree because everything sounds so good. We were so thankful that our 9 month old was welcomed and staff went over and beyond helping make an evening to remember. We will surely return! More...
This is a nice atmosphere but very expensive. I wouldn't dine there again.
Food and service are fantastic. The attention to detail and quality of the food and service make the experience above and beyond any other restaurant we've been visited. They even game us an Anniversary card and champagne toast. How many restaurants do that!! More...
Great food and service. The prix fixe meal holds a ton of value.
Food was very imaginative tasty and a teeny bit decadent. Wait staff was very friendly, appropriately attentive and enthusiastic, and helpful. Don't get to Providence too often from Boston, but it's definitely on the repeat list More...
Wonderful tasting menu!!!!!
We loved having our celebration at Gracie's! The service was top notch and the food was outstanding. Kendal is a pleasure to work with! The photographer, Jason was also very flexible and helpful! More...
Gracie's was everything we heard it was and more! Great dining experience!!
We went to Gracie's to celebrate my wife's birthday. A truly extraordinary experience in every way. We were greeted with a table set with champagne flutes and sprinkled with little stars. Our excellent server Anat poured champagne for my wife and, upon hearing that I do not consume alcohol, promptly brought some sparkling cider - very thoughtful. We enjoyed a delightful 3-course menu, and the service was excellent - we waiting for nothing, dishes were promptly cleared, crumbs from the excellent bread quickly swept from the table. Anat informed me that they could do a "mocktail" to accompany each course in lieu of wine, specially prepared to complement the food. They were excellent. To cap it all off, on the way out we observed a server resetting an adjacent table, and she was actually ironing the tablecloth to ensure that it was wrinkle-free! When was the last time you saw that in a restaurant? Gracie's is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny! More...
Gracie's was fantastic. The service was outstanding . Right in the action of federal hill, yet distances itself from the noisy area in which it resides. Accommodated gluten free needs exceptionally. Highly recommend the gnocchi carbonara. More...
Some hits, some misses. Maybe it was an off night but the service was very slow. We waited nearly 30 minutes for drinks. Bread came even later. Gnocchi appetizer very good, but nothing else that memorable. Given the rave reviews, we were a bit disappointed. More...
we choose to dine a la cart and everything was excellent! I'm looking forward to trying Gracie's again, only next time I would do the 5 or 7 course with wine pairing. What even your preference is give it a try and you wont be disappointed. More...
Delicious, creative menu options; fantastic staff; great attention to detail and amazing little touches!
Perfect evening. Exquisite food from a creative chef. Delightful and attentive service. Equal to anything we have in New Orleans and a must for your dining experience in Providence.
We had a wonderful dining experience prior to our show at PPAC. We made the staff aware of time constraints and they were very attentive to making sure everything was done with enough time to get to the show. Definitely earns their 4 diamond rating. More...
We have been to Gracie's many times and always ordered off the menu. This time we were celebrating my 60th Birthday and had the wine cellar as our dining area. A very special room. We had the 9 course tasting and wine pairing. The entire experience was incredible. Each course built upon itself. Each pairing was nicely matched. We were equally impressed with the non alcohol pairings as well. Highly recommended evening and a wonderful experience. More...
Gracie's is my favorite Providence restaurant! The food is fresh, well prepared and delicious, the servers attentive and well trained, the restaurant attractive. Plus with valet parking and across the street from Trinity Rep it makes for a perfect evening. More...
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here, and it was excellent! The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was cozy. Gracie's is a fantastic place for an intimate dinner with friends, family, or a significant other. More...
My husband and I love Gracie's. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Providence for special occasions or date night!
I don't have anything to write, but it says I need 50 characters.
First of all we loved everything of this dinner: the place, the ambiance, the diverse staff, the service, and especially the food. We (2) opted for one 3 course price fix - gnocchi with morels; duck breast with sweet potato and bak choy, followed by crème brulee. Each of the dishes was of generous size, great tasting, and well plated. We also enjoyed octopus appetizer - may be a bit too tender. It should be noted that the breads were imaginative and the staff came by several times to check if we would like additional pieces. Great place, quite a find! More...
Gracie's is just wonderful; every experience I've had there has been perfect. As a lactose-free vegetarian, it can be difficult to find fine-dining experiences that not only accommodate my restrictions, but actually offer really delicious options, and Gracie's definitely does. I recently visited for a birthday dinner; my husband and I did the 5-course tasting (which really works out to be more like 7-8 with small bites in between courses). The focus was on fresh spring produce, and even though that can be limited that time of year, every course was distinctive and made with just as much care as the meat dishes. We had a perfect evening! More...
Gracie's is excellent! One of the best dining experiences I've ever had!
Everyone around our table seemed to have come for the same reason that we did - celebrating a birthday. It's a good place for that. Food was good but not beyond expectations. The duck was our favorite. More...
Gracie's is a wonderful all around superb experience. The chef never disappoints! We love the tasting menu, a perfect combination of delicious food and wine. The service is always outstanding.
Great service, great food!
Wonderful experience! We were greeted at our anniversary date with a champagne toast and private seating. Meeting Ellen, the owner was an unexpected but appreciated happening.
Great & Interesting food, locally sourced 3-course fixed price menu offered nice portions of chef's specialties at a fair price. Great, attentive service but not over powering. We have already recommended Gracie's to friends and will return soon. Thank you! More...
It is always a great dining experience at Gracie's . Delicious food and fantastic service!
perfect in every way for that very special occasion-- our 2nd time there and our previous waiter Jim McLaughlin actually came over to greet us as he remembered us from or first visit over a year ago- wow
Dinner for a birthday celebration and early mother's day. Arrived at table to have stars sprinkled and complementary champagne for a toast. Dinner was great, service was great, always a big treat to go to Gracie's; my favorite restaurant in RI. More...
Just loved our dinner at Gracie's! We chose the prix fix menu and were very pleased! In addition to our 3 generous courses, we were presented with small tasting bites in between. This little delight sets Gracie's above the rest! The food was delicious, the ambiance is romantic and we will definitely be back! More...
We were offered and accepted "The WIne Room". Great ambience, lots of private fun, excellent service and wonderful food!
we had an amazing time! we were taken care of very well and the food and wine pairings were genius. very expensive but worth it for a special event
I had my anniversary with my girlfriend here and everything was fantastic. Our server(Anat I believe) was knowledgeable, the staff was friendly and the meal was incredible. I've already told everyone I know about this place and recommended it to all. We will definitely be coming back soon. More...
Experience was incredible. Wait staff was awesome. Food is out of this world. Would do it again and again.
Gracies is always good. Love the menu. Always something a little different
I loved everything about our dinner at Gracie's! They went above and beyond to make the birthday dinner extra special. From the complimentary champagne, table decorations and card, and extra food tastes, we felt like we were the center of the universe. The food was delicious and the wine pairings and cocktails were perfect. The service was amazing, several friendly servers were focused and attentive. I would highly recommend anyone go, especially to celebrate a special occasion. More...
Another perfect birthday dinner. Thank you.
We had an unforgettable time ! The 5 course tasting menu was delicious, creative and nicely prestented! We've celebrated my husband's birthday and got a free taste of Cava! The service was perfect, friendly and the courses came at the right paste: not to fast not to slow. The pairing wines were perfecly chosen! Not the well known grapes but wines from Santorini Greece, ... we had a GREAT evening!! We certainly go back. More...
Great food, service, ambiance. Highly recommended.
There was a bit a confusion with dinner. However the Manager quickly took care of it. The staff and management couldn't have been more gracious and generous. I would highly recommend Gracie's.
I have been to Gracie's for several work dinners over the years and wanted to go back for a relaxing dinner with my husband. We both loved it. Their house rigatoni is to die for. My husband loved his trout. The little servings between courses, bakery treats at the end and overall quality of service is what has earned Gracie's its Zagat status. They are determined to exceed expectations. The valet even left two wrapped cookies in our car. Highly recommend. More...
Fantastic!!!! It's the best dining experience I've ever had and I come back as much as possible!!
Amazing experience at Gracie's! They got themselves loyal customers!
Awesome dining experience. Food was terrific and service was excellent
It was a 5 star performance as always. I loved every second of being there.
Fantastic as always. It is clear that management is on top of every aspect of the dining experience. Food is delicious, ambience is classy, service is phenomenal and the wine list is top notch.
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We had the 7 course meal with wine pairing and it was phenomenal. Wines were paired perfectly. Highly recommend.
One of the best in Providence, Rhode Island Worth the drive!
Outstanding good and great service. stars!!!!! Will definitely recommend and will be back
The only thing better than the food was the very attentive service
Made our Anniversary fantastic with complimentary flutes of champagne and dessert. Jim our waiter was very knowledgeable and was one of the best servers I have ever had! Would highly recommend Gracie's for a romantic date or special occasion. Thanks for a great night! More...
Gracie's has become my favorite Providence restaurant. They pay attention to the details and are responsive to customer requests. We had the 5-course tasting with wine pairings, and, literally, enjoyed each course immensely. There was only one red wine included in the pairings, which is a bummer for red fans like us, but each wine matched its accompanying course nicely. It was a leisurely paced, wonderful evening. More...
Outstanding food & service. Would definitely return to restaurant when visiting the area.
When you have a special event and you need everything to be perfect - -the service and the food, this is the restaurant to come to. Everything also includes an excellent, innovative and creative chef to a very knowledgeable wine manager. Thanks Gracie's for making our dinner another memorable event. More...
We went to Gracie's before a PPAC event we were attending. They have Valet which we did not use but its a good addition since parking is limited in the area. The interior is a nice upscale setting with an intimate feel and great service. We were offered to check our coat prior to being seated. We did not wait long at all before being greeted by our server who was very helpful in explaining the difference dining options. We decided on the Prix Fix menu which was a great value for the amount of food you receive. We had one person who was a vegetarian and she was accommodated for every meal. I was worried the meal sizes would be much smaller as this is a more upscale restaurant but we all left completely full. Everything was well planned and the service was outstanding. They have something for everyone which is nice and the food was delicious all around. Highly recommended! More...
VERY GOOD MEAL AT GRACIES. EVERYTHING PERFECTLY PREPARED USING LOCAL, SEASONAL INGREDIENTS. WAITE STAFF PROFESSIONAL AND ATTENTIVE BUT NOT HOVERING. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK.
This is undoubtedly our favorite restaurant. The food is great; for a party of 6, everyone raved about their choices. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. The thing we like about it is that there is never a rush to get you out of there. When you get a table there for the evening, it is yours.I recommend the private wine room if you can get it. Fabulous!!! More...
Appreciated extra attention for our anniversary!! Also, the perks accompanying our gift card for The Providence Performing Art Center were much more than expected! Desserts to die for!
